New Infographic: The Paleo Revolution

If you've been keeping up then you know that I am loving all these emerging infographics.  Low carb diets have a lot of science behind them that is confusing and boring, even for me.  These graphics help explain things in a quick and interesting way.  This particular one was submitted by a wonderful reader and comes to us courtesy of Medical Billing and Coding.  Many thanks to the reader who forwarded this information.

The Paleo diet has quickly come into fashion and is a good mid step for someone who wants to cut their carb intake but isn't ready to go all the way.  It has a lot of similarities to the Atkins diet including a reduction in dairy, sugar, and alcohol.  It focuses on eating the way our hunter/gatherer ancestors did: incorporating low sugar fruits, leafy vegetables, lean meats, and healthy fats.  The Paleo diet has also been recommended as a way to break through a weight loss plateau.

If you have questions feel free to send them to lifelovelowcarb@gmail.com and I'll do my best to answer them, or to direct you to some additional resources.  Happy eating!

The Paleo Revolution


  1. New reader! :::waves!:::

    I found your blog last week while looking for a low carb milkshake recipe and I keep finding myself back here like every day!

    I've only tried your chocolate milkshake and hot chocolate recipes so far (chocolate craving...) but I definitely see others in my future.

    Finding someone else who's real about their low carb struggles and successes has been nice. Helps me stay on track! I love the graphics, too!


  2. Thanks for stopping by! I have a love hate relationship with low carb milkshakes. I love them but once I buy the ice cream I can't stop myself from eating it! I wish they made carb control ice cream in the mini portions like the kinds from Ben & Jerry's or Haagen-Dazs.

    I've been having a hard time staying on track since classes started back up this semester. The scale says I'm doing fine, but I've been feeling kind of icky and bloated from taking short cuts and not exercising enough. I'm working on finding my way back right now. It does help to read that others are going through the same things.
